    It should be fine - I think as the tf turns on as soon as you plug it in you will be OK. I checked mine was OK with wifi etc & then left it to charge until it read "charged " on the screen.

    When you charge it for the first time, is it charging both the tablet and dock together, or do you charge them separately?

    The batteries are not parallel.
    The prime charges from the dock when docked and the dock charges from the AC adaptor. A good overnight charge will take care of them both. I ony mde it about 3 hours before I powered mine on for the 1st time and they were both at around 50% at that point then the charging indicator was flashing as the primes battery went up and the dock battery decreased.

    I don't think there is a hard and fast answer, different theories float around the forum, but I personally believe it really doesn't matter. I just wouldn't let either one (especially the tablet) to go too far down(like below 20%).

    So basically as long as the tablet is docked, I just need to keep the dock charging then, which should keep them both charged? Thanks!

    When i first plugged mine in it was low on battery. I felt the charge box and it was hot and charging. I was kind of hoping that the new prime somehow fixed th e hot charging transformer. Nope! Still hot. However after 3 hours the box was cool to the touch and it displayed 100% charged. Even as I started all my downloading of backups it stayed at 100%. I'm not sure if it goes into trickle mode or not but, I think it is safe. I will leave it plugged in for a minimum of 8 hours
    To begin with. This sets up a good "memory" pattern for future charge. I use a lot of lythium powered tools and this is always a common recommendation across all the manufacturers. Whether it is 6, 12, or 18volt lithium powered stuff. If this is relative to this battery? IDK. I figure a few hundred dollars is worth
    Listening to my suppliers.

    I would think it is fine to use while first charging, but still let it charge for 8+ hours
